Hi there,
If you can hire a boat then moving around and touring different locations would not be a problem.

The main dredging is finished so the islands are there but they're basically just piles of sand with nothing on them.

You can now drive onto Palm Jumeirah all the way to the outer crescent, where Atlantis Hotel is. Taxis will take you if you don't have a car. You can also take a dhow tour from Dubai Marina which goes around the marina and Palm Jumeirah.

Travel Tips for Dubai

National Dress and Dress Code In U.A.E.

by 37SingleMaleInDubai1

Dress Code


The dress code is much the same as in your own country. Shorts, skirts, and short-sleeved shirts are quite acceptable, but with a sense of modesty and common sense. Revealing or tight fitting clothes should be avoided.

The national dress for men is the dishdasha or khandura, an ankle length robe, usually white. Dishdashas are usually worn with a white or red-checkered headcloth (gutra) and a twisted black rope-like coil (agal) which holds the gutra in place; under the headdress is a skull cap (gafia).

In public, most national women wear a black abaya, a long loose black robe that covers their normal clothes, plus a head scarf, called a shayla. Some women also wear a thin black veil covering their face, while some older women wear a small mask made of fabric known as a burkha, which covers the nose, brow and cheekbones.

Also good to read :-)

What can be worn by a female could be anything from shirts and tops to skirts and shorts to saris and kimonos. Much less is worn on the beach these days although going around in one's birthday suit is strictly a no-no. Dubai respects other cultures and has a relatively more liberal dress code but it also recommends modesty that is in keeping with being part of a Muslim country.

Dubai is a tourist-friendly emirate, the second largest among the seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Tourists are welcome and made to feel at home -- Western clothes, continental food, sauna, pool, Star TV et al. You could wear anything from full-sleeved to half-sleeved to mega-sleeved to sleeveless tops (but please keep your tops on) and nobody could care less. While trousers, long skirts, knee-length skirts, minis, micro-minis, micro-micros and shorts are all the done wear, restrict the bikinis to the beaches, or you could land yourself in some trouble. (The Jumeirah Beach is a fun place and so is Mamzar Park, which has both real and artificial beaches.)

Building of The Palm

by Cynthia_marie

See the White Sand off in the distance. This is the Palm being built; a man-made island in the shape of a palm tree. Homes will be built here (they were sold out in 3 days); malls; etc. A second palm is also underway. It is amazing to watch this being built. The sand is brought up from the bottom of the sea and "blown" onto the island.

Gold

by solopes about Gold Souk

One of the recommended goods to buy in Dubai is… gold.

If you know what you want, and are sure about how to choose, the gold souk will be your universe.

I can’t recommend one shop: they stand door after door, and you will end loosing yourself in the golden maze, searching for your precious ornament. The prices seem to be good, but… it’s gold, you know?

Abras in Dubai Creek

by kelhan

We hired an Abra [water taxi] for a personal tour of the Dubai Creek. As we walked down to the wharf, I saw the Abra driver push his full load of men off the boat, so he could take us two ladies on the tour. I was mortified.

Firstly, because the disgruntled men had to find another boat to take them across the river, and second, if the driver could get rid of 14 people and make enough money with the two of us, we were probably paying way too much! But we had a lovely cruise up the river.

Next time around we did the local thing and paid 1 dirham (30 cents) for a ride across to the other side.

Arabic Cuisine

by Amisha074

Tasty Bite in Fahidi Street (near the Dubai Museum) serves the best falafel sandwhich (Chick peas and fawa beans patties in arabic bread) in town. For Dh 2.5 you get a decent sized sandwhich with plenty of veggies and lots and lots of tahini (sesame seed paste).
The falafel sandwhich at Damiyati (Karama, near the Post office) isn't too bad either.

Al Shami restaurant in Muraqqabat (Deira) serves excellent lebanese food. The Khubz (Arabic bread) is outstanding are so are their mezze (starters).

Fatafeet restaurant by the Dubai creek (on the Bur Dubai side) has a nice atmospehere and good food. Having sheesha by the creek is quite an experience!

For Baklava (Arabic pastry) go to Al Reef Lebanese Bakery. Before buying any, always sample some. The pastry isn't always fresh. You have to buy them by weight.

The above mentioned places are not too expensive.
